We all face day to day challenges and then thrown our way is a boulder. How do we cope? Like water working its way down a mountain as we find obstacles we have to decide are we going to let them stop our flow or will we find a way around? Being made up of mostly water we need to keep hydrated and not allow our water to become stagnant or pool in despair.
We all face endings, neutral zones and then new beginnings. Like the seasons in our great country we see change. Most often we cannot change the circumstances but we can change how we deal with them and how we work them through. Life can be cruel sometimes.
Teilhard de Chardin 1881 - 1955 said "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, but spiritual beings having a human experience". I believe the spirit of my ancestors are with me, around me and present in a different realm. Is this realm heaven? Who knows but I do believe we are here on this earth a short time, our spirit inhabiting a vessel and experiencing that which makes us human. Eating ice cream, sharing in love and passion, and cheering on our favourite sport team. Spiritually we connect with others and live life.
How do you connect? How do you cope? Are you living in the pain of your past unable to move forward? Take some time in meditation and prayer and ask the greater good, your higher power, the God of your life to be with you and help you find the light. Each moment of life should be savored and appreciated and when we get stuck we need help.
